    Music similar to Crystal Castles

    I fell in love with Crystal Castles a few years ago and have been listening to them quite a bit lately. They have a new album out called Amnesty (I) but the old singer left the band (Alice Glass) before this new album and I don't like it as much.

    I used to think they just had a very unique sound and for some reason it never occurred to me that there was an entire genre of music out there that sounded similar. The other day I randomly listened to some song that claimed to be "witch house" and Youtube autoplay kept playing more witch house songs afterwards and I ended up discovering a ton of bands/songs with a similar sound! <3 <3 <3
    I think the one band that stands out the most to me right now is Crim3s. But to be honest I don't remember most of the bands because they all have really crazy stylized names that I find hard to remember.

    Anyways: anyone else in love with Crystal Castles and/or know about some good bands that sound similar?

    Yeah, Vanished is one of my favs. I like it all, tbh.

    I really like Celestica:


    Sad Eyes is another fav of mine:

    Thanks for those great recommendations! I hadn't heard any of them before

    I like CC's self-titled album. All of their first three albums, actually. Their fourth album has a different singer and isn't nearly as good in my opinion. I only like one song from it

    Have you tried using http://www.gnoosic.com/? I've used it before and found some bands I didn't know of through it's recommendations.
